Beginner Level, Year 1-3

During the first years of English studies, the lesson periods in Sweden are short, 20-30 minutes once or twice a week, getting gradually longer. Some teachers just choose to take “English moments” at first when time allows. According to the Swedish Curriculum, these periods/moments should consist of songs/rhymes, vocabulary and dialogues/stories. presents these both within themes and as individual language practice links. Reading English words is not expected during the first year, but by the second year students can read and write simple words and phrases moving on to very short texts by year three.
